 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23355850


If you'll scroll back, you'll see that one reason for declaration of martial law was during a previous attempt at nuclear testing.

Re: North Korea Declares MARTIAL LAW
They are declaring martial law because they intend to test fire a missile in the direction of the United States...

Which under normal circumstances might elicit a response but considering who is running things now it's unlikely the USA will do a damn thing..
 Quoting: ^TrInItY^


Or a nuclear test.

I agree that they'll be no reaction though.
 Quoting: Lime Flavoured Redux


I saw an article recently where they literally said that they are going to test fire an icbm in the direction of the USA...

With the Clintons leaving the administration all hell might break loose..

For some reason the North Koreans love the Clintons..

Jong-un issues a martial law order
한·미 양국 '초비상'… 北, 결국 사고 칠 듯 Jan 31,2013


North Korean leader Kim Jong-un issued a secret order to “complete preparations for a nuclear weapons test between Tuesday and yesterday” and carry it out sometime soon, a source told the JoongAng Ilbo.

Kim also reportedly said, “The country will be under martial law starting from midnight Jan. 29 and all the frontline and central units should be ready for a war,” the source said.

The North’s state media reported Sunday that Kim convened an emergency meeting with top defense and security officials on Saturday. It said Kim made a stern command to take “effective, high-profile state measures” and “assigned specific tasks” to officials. The measures were sparked by new sanctions unanimously passed by the United Nations Security Council on North Korean entities and individuals, including travel bans and asset freezes, the media said. The reports boosted speculation that Kim is preparing a third nuclear weapons test.

"South Korean defence minister Kim Kwan-jin told troops deployed on the border with the North that they should be ready to cope swiftly with any "provocations".

"Provocations are always possible because North Korean troops have been put on full alert," Kim told AFP.

Outgoing South Korean president Lee Myung-Bak held an emergency security meeting of senior ministers and military staff and warned Pyongyang against "reckless action".

Myung-Bak is a lame duck. NK may decide it's time to push the envelope a little with some saber rattling.

Global Times, an English language media run by China's Communist Party, is running this analysis. It has a Reuters byline, but it has the Xinhua stamp of approval.

"S.Korea warns against nuclear test
Reuters | 2013-2-1 0:58:01
By Agencies

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak held an emergency security meeting Thursday that warned North Korea of "serious consequences" if it went through with an expected nuclear test.

The meeting at the presidential Blue House included the defense minister, National Intelligence Service chief and the national security advisor.

A statement issued afterwards said Lee had insisted on a strengthened defense posture, given Pyongyang's apparent desire to take advantage of the ongoing leadership transition in the South.

Lee will be formally replaced as president by the newly elected Park Geun-hye on February 25.

"The government urges North Korea to immediately stop all provocative statements and actions and abide by international obligations including UN Security Council resolutions," the statement said.

"If the North miscalculates and commits a provocative act again, it would face various serious consequences," it added.

"“China is still useful to us. We need to be careful of the relationship with China,” Kim allegedly said at the meeting.


A South Korean government official told reporters Wednesday that satellite images had discovered increased activity and movement of equipment near the Punggye-ri nuclear test site in the northwest of the country and that the mouth of the test shaft had been sealed in readiness for a nuclear test.

China Daily, another Chinese Communist Party propaganda pub, directly implicates Russia in the rocket launch:



Republic of Korea hopes for third time lucky on rocket launch
Updated: 2013-01-30 07:26
By Zhou Wa and Cheng Guangjin (China Daily)


No problems reported from final countdown

The Republic of Korea will make its third and final attempt to send its space rocket into orbit on Wednesday, in an effort to realize a long-held ambition.

Despite a series of difficulties and failures, the ROK has maintained its homegrown rocket program because a successful launch will bring Seoul international recognition, greater self-confidence and economic benefits, according to observers.

Yonhap News Agency said a final launch simulation of the Korea Space Launch Vehicle-1, also known as the Naro, was conducted on Tuesday and there were no apparent problems.

The agency said the rocket is tentatively set to lift off at 4 pm on Wednesday from the Naro Space Center. The exact time of the launch is expected to be disclosed about two hours beforehand.

The ROK tried to launch the Naro in 2009 and 2010, but both attempts ended in failure. Seoul also planned to launch the rocket on Oct 26, and again on Nov 29, but both were put off because of technical problems.

Wednesday's attempt is the third and the last trial under an agreement between the ROK and Russia, whose Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center manufactured the first stage of the Naro. The ROK lacks the technology.

I would like to remind you that while US sources were poo-pooing the launch of the "weather satellite" a couple of months ago, the darned thing was up there going around and around in orbit all the time the US said it failed. It is not always wise to airily dismiss the madmen of the world.

Re: North Korea Declares MARTIAL LAW
North Korea is the most unstable nation on the planet with a huge military poised above ground across the DMZ, with troops in underground bunkers and has tunneled under the DMZ, has nuclear capability, etc. They are a total wild card. Literally anything could happen, because their economic situation is very tenuous and they're starving. It's only a matter of time before a coup happens.

Meanwhile we have a weak President in the USA. We have a lame duck South Korea leader. We have Japan and China saber rattling.

You have to ask yourself, what would be the downside of North Korea invading South Korea from their perspective? It's a matter of brinksmanship. I personally doubt that Obama would launch first, for that's not the current nuclear doctrine. That puts the USA in a response mode of waiting while an invasion takes place. South Korea could not repel the North Koreans in all honestly unless the USA also engaged.

Re: North Korea Declares MARTIAL LAW
I'm glad to see this pinned. No nation declares marial law without a reason. Something has changed, but because there's such limited information coming from North Korea, it may be awhile (if ever) than we know what happened. I would suspect some military folks tried an abortive attempt at a coup, or else some organied resistance is happening.

Here's a related story:
[link to www.theatlanticwire.com]
" An officer with the Korean People's Army chimed in with something you'd probably hear from a Mortal Kombat character:

We, servicepersons, are now filled with the fixed will to annihilate at once the hostile forces infringing upon the sovereignty of the country. The powerful striking means of the Paektusan revolutionary army have already been in full readiness to shower fire of merciless punishment on the disgusting den of evils and show what a real war is like."

And another one:
[link to www.businessinsider.com]
"While it has been anticipated that Pyongyang will go ahead with what will be the regime's third nuclear test, in spite of international pressure to refrain from doing so, analysts had predicted that the blast would be timed to coincide with the birthday on February 16 of Kim Jong-il, the former leader who died in late 2011, or the inauguration of the new government in South Korea nine days later.

The reports now suggest that the demonstration of North Korea's nuclear prowess is more imminent.

In March 1993, North Korea placed the nation under martial law shortly before it announced it was withdrawing from the Treaty in the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. The regime also ordered its troops to be ready for war."
 Quoting: Don'tBeAfraid


Most likely they are declaring martial law because of the statement that South Korea recently made that there would be very serious repercussions if they went ahead with the nuclear test..including and not ruling out physical force.

I'm pretty sure that if South Korea was attacked the U.S. forces there would fight ...at least to defend themselves..no matter what Obama tells them to do. You can bet the North Koreans would be targeting the U.S. soldiers there first, since to them we are their number one foe.
